How to Increase Your Income With a Glamping Hut!

New Zealand’s great outdoors makes a perfect backdrop for one of the biggest tourist growth areas: Glamping.

Glamorous camping: meaning candles, an outdoor fire, a hot tub and lovely food, combined with a rustic but luxurious place to stay has become the holiday dream of many visitors. It can bring in a tidy income for those who wish to share their beautiful outdoor spaces with others. If you own a farm or a rural property you may be looking for a lifestyle where you can host guests and show them a true natural side of NZ. Imagine little huts dotted beside the river or overlooking a scenic outlook of beautiful green farmland.

For a relatively small outgoing expenditure you can bring in a tidy wee profit. Most people want their outdoor escape to be private and if they have everything they need, along with a luxury feel, they’ll be happiest when left alone to explore, relax and enjoy what you have to offer.

If you have the space, you can add more than one cabin to accommodate larger groups and families. Glamping huts are perfect for an investment property or an escape off the grid. Perfect for batches or huts by the beach.

Imagine being in the trees… listening to the birds as the sun comes up! This is possible with a kitset shed and the results can be amazing.

As Glamping suggests, it’s not just about the outdoor experience… It’s the total package. Wonderful views enjoyed in a beautiful space, and relaxing with great food. Watching the sun go down and enjoying the night sky. A hot bath or shower, followed by a comfortable bed, a book and the sounds of nature.

So, if you live in a beautiful part of the country, from the far north to the wild country of the south, why not share your own piece of heaven and make a little bit of cash adding some glamping huts to your land?
